Every day competition against the nation's best is tough to recruit against. The best ought to want to go against the best. Only Alabama can rival tOSU depth and talent. Life continues to be swell in Columbus.
A few more servings of Salty Harbaugh are in order.
Based on the link above that is not what they're implementing next year. Instead, it seems significantly more complicated. OHSAA is calling for a year-by-year, sport-by-sport calculation to place private (and open enrollment public) schools. I'm all for data, but I sure would hate to be an AD starting next year.
I grew up/attended high school in Ohio but I currently live in Arkansas so I'm still trying to figure out how things work down here.
In AR, private schools compete with public in athletics, but private schools play in a larger division (i.e. play against schools with more students) to try to balance things a bit. I didn't pore through years of data, but at least this year's playoffs only one division out of six was won by a private school and it was Pulaski Academy so I don't even know if they had an option to lose.
I don't remember private schools in Ohio having that sort of challenge, but it seems to be working in Arkansas. I'm curious to see what data OHSAA can gather and what changes they may make.
It's always a bad move to criticize the officiating after a loss, but it's made worse when a) you're blatantly and demonstrably wrong and b) you're Jim Harbaugh--the whole-milk-drinking #PureMichiganMan who definitely doesn't go to sleep-overs with teens.
My thoughts exactly re Peppers. Isn't he usually listed at LB?
Isn't this what got Dez Bryant suspended?
Yikes. He would fit MSU remarkably well.
I wish the kid great luck. Recruiting is hard and, from what I can see, he's doing what's best for him while remaining respectful.
And we don't have to hear that awful fight song for a whole year.
Bert mustering Arkansas into the Top 25 puts a damper on my dream of him coaching Iowa.
Don't worry. Bert will still lose to Alcorn State then turn around and beat Bama. He'll follow that by winning half of the rest of his games and make it to a late-December bowl game. That's what I have to look forward living in Arkansas and not caring for the home team.
It's festival season in the Buckeye State. Many towns hold festivals named after corn or meat products. They're all grand in their own way, but for none of them stack up to Marion's Popcorn Festival
As a son of Circleville, I must take issue with the statement above. Circleville's Pumpkin Show is, and forever will be, Ohio's greatest food/gourd-based festival. Now and forevermore!
Living in AR, this is the closest tOSU has come to me in a long while. I'm trying to convince my better half that we should buy tickets. OU taking a loss Saturday help drive down ticket cost. If it drops a little more then I think it'll be a go.
What color should we wear to try to ruin the "striping?"
Recruiting is going to be rough.
Just let JT air it out. All will be well.
Hate to see this. For both the football team and the kid. Here's hoping he can mature and learn from this. JT's snafu last season reminded me that even smart leaders can make bad decisions.
Gave you an UV because someone had given you a DV in protest. A funny protest, but one I cannot abide.
The money's the same, but the principle isn't. The Chargers are working to protect themselves and so is Bosa. The CBA is supposed to make this easier but people trying to save money have found a way to complicate the matter. Neither side is wrong, necessarily, but it seems that the organization is the least right. Bosa seems to be sticking up for himself and--the Player's Association hopes--future high draft picks in this stand. I'm with Bosa (however, I'm biased because he's a Buck).
Pretty sure I need Coach Coombs as my alarm clock. Never sleeping in again.
I love that the game played out in a way that Zeke's 80 yard run through the heart of the mid-Atlantic goes virtually unnoticed. This is going to be a good year.
TTUN could feasibly lose four of their first five games. Life is great!
Made the mistake of performing an image search for a funny furry photo to add here. Never again.
Always UV for a Producers reference.
